I just downloaded Caruso Parts 1 and 2...great stuff...I had a great-uncle who played the Caruso cylinders for us on XMAS...none one besides Benito was allowed to touch anything...So we children would sip expresso and nibble at Stella Doro cookies, listening to the Victorola, while Uncle Bennie sat in the rocker, lost in the past....

We appreciate your gratitude, it means alot to our staff and funders. Real thanks for this collection and most others should go to our patrons that post and organize the materials. This is a user directed site.

The music collections are becoming really terrific. I hope our patrons find more classical and folk music performances that can be widely shared.

I am extremely upset. I don't want to call these people first. No one has the right to copy my website and music without my permission and use my name falsely on the net.
I am being excessively harassed by some people on the net.
I had a site called Marissa Marchant, this is not my legal birth name. I am an artist. I passingly said I was selling cds for 1000 dollars as a joke. someone made a big thing about it, put up a false interview..and made it look real. I was never selling cd's for 1000.
they spread these lies all over the net and someone put an article in the San Fransico Weekly and another newspaper in Cleveland ..Sf Weekly is owned by News Times. They put a false newspaper article about my 1000 dollar cd..when I am selling my cd's for 20 dollars.

anyway, my point. My artist name is Maerisza Sabrael...a name I thought was too difficult for people to remember...
They since then archived my old website without my permission. this is a copyrighted website. My music is copyrighted as well. You can not duplicate someone's site.
..and you can't copy it without someone's permission.

I have contacted lawyers.

I advise you to take down the Marissa Marchant archive unless you want legal trouble.

My song For You is called Take My Life and copyrighted under my legal name.

Wikipedia wrote a false biography about me.

wikipedia Marissa Marchant where they make up one lie after another.
I have never sold a cd for 1000 dollars.

I have the right to change my site and do what I wish with my website. No one has the right to take what I own and defame people.

If you don't remove this site from your website..I will also get involved with forcing you to take it off legally.
go to my site if you wish to contact me.

I thought sounded like something people could remember more. But I like my name Maerisza Sabrael much better.
I was saying that better musicians exist and should be acknowledged.
I am a sinner.
LOL>
they are paying their publicists to defame me.
the celebrities are angry.
I guess no one can say they don't like stars.

..or they will be whipped into submission.

Forum: 78rpm Subject: Anyone know how to search for lossless vinyl...???

This message is not a reply to Brewster, I'm a newbie here, well a newbie member anyway as I noticed for the first time today these 78 LPs & love vinyl. But all the rips I've seen have been MP3s or other lossy for which I have no interest. I know this place is associated with E-Tree, I just don't get why someone would post something of such historical value, well actually any audio in lossy.

Please do the artists their due and preserve their work in a bit for bit perfect copy and post the rips in losssless FLAC or APE [the really strange thing is that other than the E-Tree connection to here, I would have figured that since someone goes to the extra time and effort of recording vinyl that putting that little extra effort that lossless requires over lossy would have been insubstantial compared to someone ripping a CD or plain audio files.


And if someone who gets it wants to convert it to lossy then they can always easily downconvert. But once the data is removed via lossy, it's gone for good [and history if no one else ever rips that album]. I did see a post about FLAC so, at least, one rip should be worthwhile, now if I can find it [or even better, others]. But an organization with such lofty goals as trying to preserve our cultural heritage really should, at least encourage, if not demand, original posts in lossless so that that heritage is not risked being lost permanently [a 'so-called high quality MP3 still removes like 85% of the data from audio regardless of whether we argue for weeks about that removed data being audible to one person or another. And regardless, it would be so wonderful if lossy rips were encouraged but lossy still permitted to make it easier for those of us only interested in the genuine article, a bit for bit copy of the original when decompressed, by separating the lossy and lossless rips into two distinct catagories to make locating them easier and not such a tedious tasks of clicking on album after album and, so far for me, only finding MP3 rips [though admittedly, I looked at less than 15 before deciding to join so that I could make this post.

I am out of country and away from home right now but when I return and can determine what in my enormous vinyl collection, largely already ripped to lossless and/or audio CDs for back-up and protection, can be uploaded legally, I will begins doing so and encouraging my numerous vinyl viper circle to do the same.

The whole idea of this site is to be commended but words cannot give it justice, I just think this place is one of the most vitale and important services on the web and is in the true spirit and ideal of what the web should be from a humanistic standpoint. This place is truely what it should be all about...spreading the wealth of our cultural legacy for us to discover, our children and our children's children and I commend whoever had the vision to get it started, all those who've put forth what I know must be long hours and hard work, though I know it must be largely a labor of love and I look forward to being a major contributor here.

Also, just to be clear, for those who do the lossy audio thing, that's your business and if that's what you want then more power to you, I have nothing against you. I just think that for those of us who really want to preserve our cultural heritage and pass it on to our offspring, having the option of passing on something that is unadulterated and not missing the vast majority of it's data should be the default and those who wish to convert a copy into a representation can easily and quickly and almost effortlessly to so. And in the meantime, you may realize, "hey, I have this perfect copy here, maybe I will save a copy of it before converting it to lossy," as do all of my friends now [those who had difficulty seeing and hearing the efficacy soon changed their minds when my wife, not much of an audiphile when we first met and with average ears, at best, played some so-called perfectly ripped MP3s on my sound system after I had trained her ears and, at first, hardly anyone could hear any difference between them and and original copies... until she pointed out to them audible diffences and trained their ears to hear the difference too!]. But my opposistion to lossy would be just as vociferous, whether I could hear the difference or not, because for me, it is the idea that I am disturbed by and concerns me for future generations when originals seemed to be a disappearing reality a few years ago. But thankfully, a group of us around the world have stood fast and insisted only on bit for bit perfect copies and recenlty we've made strident steps recruiting others who demand no less than the best and to the many other's who've been like me and stood firm insisting on lossless, I commend you enormously too, as well. And I encourage all MP3 users to just realize if you get an original, before you downconvert it to lossy, think about archiving the lossless to CDR[W] or DVDR[W] or an audio CD if other factors make lossy an imposition now overall for you at the moment or you don't "get the point" because in the not too distant future, everyone will have superfast connections on superfast computers with enormous HDD and removable storage capacity and IPods already will hold large quantities of Apple's lossless format, so you may infer from that that ever more portables in the fuutre will just increase those capabilities more and more and more. Honestly, I now feel confident to say that I see an end the coming to lossy audio as there will be no need for it. And what will become of your lossy collection then...???

Again, so many thanks to this wonderful place and the people here!!!

I'm gonna hide my e-mail for now but hopefully will be able to get back to this post. I've never been a big forum person because I hate spam and my travel schedule is so hectic that keeping up can be difficult but maybe PMs may be sent using this forum or maybe it's pretty safe to publicize your e-mail, I just am too new now and don't have the info I need to risk it.

the really strange thing is that other than the E-Tree connection to here, I would have figured that since someone goes to the extra time and effort of recording vinyl that putting that little extra effort that lossless requires over lossy would have been insubstantial compared to someone ripping a CD or plain audio files.

I think it's a matter of education. Etreers have educated each other about the benefits of lossless and how to work with the files with respect to live music. But in other musical spheres, word gets around less readily. So, thanks for raising the lossless banner here, it may help make a difference!

BTW Here is one easy tool that (Windows) people can use, Trader's Little Helper:
http://thor.prohosting.com/roh0205/

78rpm people, if you have ultimately prepared .wavs on PC from your original hard copies, you can use that tool to make .wav > .flac for example. By your archiving those, anyone around the world can end up with copies of your original .wavs.

An additional benefit is that if .flac files are uploaded here, the archive can automatically do some conversions to mp3 and ogg for you, here at the site, so that various choices are available.
